    Brotha Man

    What’s up brotha man
    I may not be your sista,
    But I still care for you like one
    You’ve been through many trials and tribulations
    Mind, body, and soul unable to take a vacation
    So you continue to get your hustle on
    I know that if you’re gonna be anything, you want be the best there is
    But you always catch hell for every move you make
    And sometimes you make big mistakes
    But doesn’t everybody?
    You’re not a low-down-no-good *****
    Or a dead beat father figure
    Demeaning your character isn’t going to solve the problem
    It’s all about keeping it real
    If I share with you my emotions
    Will you honestly tell me how you feel?
    Cause frankly
    Being a man is secondary to being human
    You feel just as much as a woman does
    But only in a different way
    I have emotions that allow me to feel from the inside out
    You have an ego that allows you to feel from the outside in
    Is that so bad?
    Not always
    In my opinion, egoism is sometimes taken out of context
    It just means that you feed off of others in order to do your best
    But the challenge is being able to balance out each others feelings
    Tell me…If I feed your ego
    Will you secure my emotions?
    If I give you proper respect
    Will you honor my devotion?
    Egoism is your driving force
    And it deserves to be nurtured
    But never to the point that you act like someone you’re not
    You have self control
    And I believe in you brotha man
    I just want to let you know that I understand
    I would never undermine your manhood
    I want to help you along the way
    When your world comes crashing down
    I will pick you up and let you know it’s okay
    You have been mistreated and mislead
    And I give you praise for making it this far
    These words that I speak to you are true
    And they come straight from the heart
    I love you brotha man

    thanks again Rich. I've been writing poetry for some years now. I need to improve on my spoken word though. I see you're from the Chi. Is Some Like It Black still jumping there?
